A summer afternoon in

the Year of Grace 1757...

...- on a hilltop overlooking

the valley of the Hudson River.

Two tragic figures, remmants

of a once huge Indian tribe...

...Chief Great Serpent

and his son, Uncas.

"The pale faces are our friends.

Go to the Fort yonder...

...and tell them of the

danger that threatens."


One of the few English...

...outposts not yet attacked... the invading armies of France.

Even in a wilderness,

gently-bred women...

...somehow maintain the grace

and dignity of life.

Cora Munro, a soldier's daughter

on a visit to Fort Edward.

Alice, her light-hearted sister...

...whom Cora has mothered

from childhood.

Captain Randolph,

more interested in...

...women than in warfare.

Major Heyward - in love

with capricious Alice.

The eternal spirit of youth,

joying while it may - heed-...

...less of the gathering storm.

"Do tell us a story,

General Webb."

"The Hurons are on the

warpath. They have drunk...

...the firewater of the French...

...and have listened to

lying tongues."

Her girlish fancy investing...

...the young Chief with a

halo of romance.

"Surely among his own

people he is a prince."

"You! - The daughter of

Colonel Munro! - ...

...Admiring a filthy savage!"

Two days' march from Fort

Edward - Colonel Munro,...

...father of the girls, stoutly

resisting the French assault...

...upon Fort William Henry.

"Three French divisions

under Montcalm...

...have crossed the lake!

Men - horses - guns!"

Magua - an Indian runner in

the service of the British.

"God grant my messenger

has reached Fort Edward - ...

...else I may never see my

daughters again!"

General Webb and his staff,

summoned to hear...

...the message of

Colonel Munro.

"Montcalm and his...

...Indian allies advancing... attack Fort William...

...Henry. 3.000 men no lesscan... us." MUNRO.

"A good opportunity to...

...rejoin your father. But you...

...need not ride all the way...

...with the troops, as the...

...Indian, Magua, knows a...

...short-cut through the forest."

Bedtime - with Alice unable

to sleep for excitement.

"There is nothing to fear -

we shall soon be with father."

Haunted by a premonition

of evil - a vague dread...

...which Cora's reassurance

fails to banish.

"Promise me - whatever

happens - ... will never

desert me!"


"Are you the guide?"

"Perhaps Captain Randolph...

...will aid Major Heyward in

protecting the ladies?"

"With your permission, sir,...

...I will ride with my men -

my duty lies with them."

The forest - and the

parting of ways.

A secret path, which only

Indian eyes can find.

"I'm David Gamut, a servant...

...of the Lord. Permit me to...

...ride with you to William...

...Henry whither I am going... sing psalms for our...

...brave soldiers."

Hours later - drench and...

...discouraged in a

blinding rainstorm.

Storm-bound woodsmen -

Uncas, his father, and their...

...friend, Hawkeye, the scout.

"In which direction lies

Fort William Henry?...

...Our Indian guide has

lost his way!"

"An Indian lost in the woods?

Impossible! Were he blind,...

...he would nose the earth -...

...and every blade of grass

would tell the way!"

"He's gone!"

"I suspect the varmint

covets your scalps!

Come - these woods

are no longer safe!"

In a cave near Glenn's

Falls - a hiding place...

...known only to Hawkeye

and the Mohicans.

"Uncas watches."

The bond of a common danger

drawing together these two, widely separated by

the mystery of birth.

James Fenimore Cooper

James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 14, 1851) was an American writer of the first half of the 19th century. His historical romances draw a picture of frontier and American Indian life in the early American days which created a unique form of American literature. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York, which was founded by his father William on property that he owned. Cooper was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and contributed generously to it. He attended Yale University for three years, where he was a member of the Linonian Society.Cooper served in the U.S. Navy as a midshipman, which greatly influenced many of his novels and other writings. The novel that launched his career was The Spy, a tale about counter-espionage set during the American Revolutionary War and published in 1821. He also wrote numerous sea stories, and his best-known works are five historical novels of the frontier period known as the Leatherstocking Tales. Cooper's works on the U.S. Navy have been well received among naval historians, but they were sometimes criticized by his contemporaries. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece (although it was mercilessly mocked by Mark Twain). more…
